Group interventions exist in a large diversity of settings. This chapter focuses on the variety of settings in which groups can be found. The goal is to provide readers with a sense of the ubiquitous nature of groups. The variety of settings includes a focus on different kinds of groups for clients of different ages with a diversity of clinical issues. Each section provides examples of groups and research to support these groups in particular settings; selected for depth of coverage in this chapter are Veterans Administration programs, behavioral health and medical settings, college/university counseling centers, and schools. The chapter concludes with suggestions for the future of groups in these settings and an extensive reference list.
